Local Ingham product re-signs at the Cowboys

Ben Spina

Retaining players that have been a part of a club system is something all clubs aim to do and the North Queensland Cowboys have done that by re-signing Ben Spina.

Spina, a local product from Ingham, has signed a contract extension until the end of the 2017 season.

The 27-year old utility forward is the son of former Cowboys great Laurie Spina and the key for the man himself was to stay in the area.

“I’m thrilled to be able to remain in North Queensland, playing for the Cowboys and continuing to develop as a player,” Spina said.

“My family were keen for me to remain in North Queensland, so this is the perfect fit.”

Spina’s debut came last year in Rd 14 and with four games to his name so far in his career, the club expect him to build on that as he becomes a crucial part of the Cowboys forward rotation.

“We’re stoked to have Ben re-sign with the club for another two seasons,” said Cowboys General Manager of Football, Peter Parr.

“And although he doesn’t have many NRL games under his belt for someone his age, he’s got plenty of high-level rugby league experience and complements our forward stocks beautifully.”
